Epicor Software Corp., Dublin, Calif., says Crescent Electric Supply Co., East Dubuque, Ill., has selected the Epicor Eclipse ERP system to replace the custom in-house ERP system it has been using since 1965. A company release announcing the installation says Epicor will provide Crescent Electric Supply with a scalable business management system for 1,200 users initially, and that the company will join the 50% of Electrical Wholesaling’s Top 200 that currently run Eclipse ERP system.

In the press release, Crescent Electric’s Martin Burbridge, president and CEO, said, “Our order processing and business software is one of the most fundamental tools we use every day, and while our mainframe system has served us well for many years, we feel the time is right to move to a new generation software offering. Therefore, we have partnered with Epicor to leverage the Eclipse solution to advance our operations to the next level of excellence.

“It will allow us to do our jobs better, faster and with a greater degree of accuracy, and our customers will benefit from the change in vastly improved customer service and data access. We will gain many features that would take years to build if we remained on our current system, and every employee of Crescent Electric will be a part of this move to drive our company to greater efficiency and profitability.”
